:(:(:( I wanted to cry when I saw him. I stopped by my petstore (not mine but the one I go to all the time) and they had this poor little tiel with deformed feet. He had no toes-just these little stubs for legs..It was sooo sad. I swear if I had the money right then and there he'd be coming home with me. I'm so upset that I wasn't able to get him. I even called someone to see if they can help me out but no luck. I hope he goes home to someone who really will love him. He was so happy and sweet for a tiel that's probably had a tough time..:(

OH how sad :( the poor thing will probably be there awhile, I find most people just walk by them but I really hope someone who has a kind heart like you do will take him, if I had the money Aly I would have done the same thing ;)

Can you contact a bird rescue or something in your area? Actually, if you tell me the pet shop and your area there's another forum i post on where someone might be able to help out.

It's Petsupermarket in Plantation Fl. I really want him. I think I'm going to go back tommorrow just to check on him. The cage is set up for him and he gets around pretty well to my suprize-just can't perch at all. When I got there one of the girls who works there was holding him. They're pretty good with their animals since it's a small petshop. From what they told me he was born that way but who knows.

ohh...
that is so sad *cries*
i hope someone with a kind heart takes him in....
unfortunately though most of the time, there is not much hope for an animal like that....
i hear of a lot of toe/feetless tiels.... if they get their foot stuck in something, they will sometimes chew their own toes off in an attempt to break free....
this is why we all need to be aware that unsuitable cages and rope toys etc can sometimes be quite dangerous!

Hehe, you know i'm going to tell you to go get him if you really want him. :lol: Do you want me to post the situation and info on this other forum, or is there a chance he's found a home. ;)

Awww. Poor tiel.
I hope the petshop is taking good care of it.
But it's sad because I know all the people where I live would probably just walk by the poor tiel thinking it was weird.
I think you should get the tiel Aly!

I looked at him and I think he was born that way...there's no sign of ever having an injury there or a scar..nothing at all. I'm going to stop by again today and see how he is. Maybe I can talk the store owner into letting me have him since I bought ALL my birds from there..(except Kiwi)..I go there ALL the time...

Hehe, you know i'm going to tell you to go get him if you really want him. :lol: Do you want me to post the situation and info on this other forum, or is there a chance he's found a home. ;)
:( I hate this...I really want him...You can post it. Maybe someone in the area will see it and want to give him a home. Unless they let me "take him off their hands" for under $20 I'm afraid there's not much else I can do at the moment...$ wise...:( I can't dip into bill money or anything-it'll screw up my finances royally for this month and I can't afford that since I don't have a real job at the moment.

Awww. Poor tiel.

They are really good with their animals. Like I said, it not a large chainstore so they acctually play with them etc..I never shop anywhere else.

Wish me luck. I would LOVE to bring him home.

What a pain that money is tight. :( I hope they will let you adopt him cheap. If he's been there a while they probably wouldn't mind too much, cause they'd know he was going to a good home. I will wait and see how things work out before posting. :)

I was there (thinking) last week Thursday and he wasn't there...I had just come from a job training that was a waste of time so I had alot on my mind. Acctually, I went to cheer myself up and buy some millet. I completly forgot the millet (which is my excuse for HAVING to go today)..I didn't even think to ask more info on him. I took him from the girl and she went to check out a customer..then I ran out to my car to call my friend and see if he can do something..he's tight until payday and the chances even then are slim. He thinks I have too many birds already..what does he know..
I couldn't sleep so I'm up now-it like 7am so I'll go first thing at 9..

That is sad :( What colour is s/he ?? I really do hope you adopt him/her :D They would be so happy ! :)
A normal grey boy. I really don't care about the color though..I just know I can help and fell in love..

So he is still at the pet shop? I hope that you can give him a good home. Can you reserve him? I would try and get him for cheaper. This might sound mean ( I don't mean it to be) but they should not sell him for full price.

Good and bad news. I kind of got my hopes up and came up with most of the money $50-normally grey tiels there are around $70. I was so excitied I drove straight to the store at 10am. When I went there I tried to find the manager and the girl said he's not in today. The tiel isn't there anymore and the cage they had him in is gone. She called someone because I was a little too presistant to find out what happened and we found out the girl that was there yesterday took him home. I asked her if she meant took him home just for the time being and she said no, that the manager let her because they didn't think he'd sell and she felt bad. I am kind of upset in a way but then again he has a home now. Hopefully she'll take care of him...I'm kind of upset because I wish I could have gotten the money yesterday.
